SAT 26 MAY        12h00              THE NEXT GENERATION                                     

Three of the most exciting and talented young musicians on the classical music scene will be exploring the seductive sounds of Latin America’s best known composers, featuring Myles Roberts (flute), David Bester (violin) and Sulayman Human (piano).   The program includes a mix of solo and ensemble works, allowing the listener to hear all the elements of the chamber music, which will be interwoven by the stories by the musicians.

SAT 26 MAY        15H00              DAVID BOWIE REWORKED

“David Bowie Reworked”, presented by Biblioteek Productions & Youngblood Arts and Culture Development, features works from the Chameleon of Rock’s heyday, conceptually reimagined as baroque compositions – a nod to his ability to revamp his music and image so many times over a long and illustrious career. The music is arranged by Jan-Hendrik Harley, and performed by Ensemble Je Ne Comprends Pas, with Harley (violin, guitar and direction), Joshua Frank (recorder, oboe and guitar), Mariechen Meyer (double bass) and John Pringle (percussion). Iconic Bowie pieces such as ‘Starman’, ‘Life on Mars’, ‘Space Oddity’, ‘Wild as the Wind’ and other will be performed on period instruments, and alternated with anonymous baroque works that also reflect the recurring themes of angst, fear and alienation in his music, in order to complete the illusion.

SAT 26 MAY        17H00              BEAUTIFUL BRAHMS

Junnan Sun (clarinet), Peter Martens (cello) and Elna van der Merwe (pianist) present an all Brahms programme. Their programme will include the sonatas for clarinet and piano, cello and piano as well as the well-known Brahms clarinet trio in a minor op 114.  The cello and clarinet are the most suitable instruments to show off the wonderful melodious qualities of Brahms.
